As if Friday morning work traffic wasn't bad enough, drivers were being warned to avoid the area of Eastbound I-14/Highway 190 and Connell Street near Exit 301 in Belton after a crash prompted a shut down of the roadway.

Shortly before 9:30 AM, Belton police announced the crash, which involved an 18-wheeler. They were trying to divert traffic around the scene, and were advising drivers to seek alternate routes.

No further details about the crash had been released as of the time of this article's publication.

If you're in the area and can't find a way around, keep an eye out for emergency workers, resist the urge to tailgate or honk (don't be that person), and try not to rubberneck.
